Colorado Territory (1949)
Wes McQueen: It reminds me of a little heist we planned in west Kansas about five or six years ago. One fella was smooth and slippery. The other was green and gabby. The third was just plain mean, from the top of his head to his boot heel. The next thing we know, there was a boxcar of soldiers coupled to that train. Too bad we never knew which one sent word to the soldiers. It would have been better for the other two if we had. Their monuments are right outside Boxville, Kansas. The prettiest little Bone Orchard you've ever seen. Little stone angels watching them.

Pluthner: Was there any trouble?
Wes McQueen: A little. The marshal picked up Reno and Duke.
Pluthner: What? Ah, that was a tough break. They was good boys. But that's the game for ya... all part of the game. You and me, Wes - just you and me left out of that fine parcel of men. Of course, we end up with the money, you and me, but that's how the cards fall.
Wes McQueen: Look, Pluthner! This deck has had so much bottom-dealing that it's dog-eared. Too many jokers keep turning up.

Wells Fargo agent: Mister, the way I figure it, you got quite a reward coming from Wells Fargo. Just leave me your name and address and the superintendant will get it touch with you.
Wes McQueen: Thanks, but I'll settle for a good horse and saddle.

Colorado Carson: You can bust out of jail, maybe, or mud holes like I was in, but you can't bust out of what you are.
Wes McQueen: You can if you're set on it.
Colorado Carson: Can ya? Me? I was born under a chuckwagon. Never got much higher. Anything was a step up. Even getting hit by Reno was all velvet.

Julie Ann Winslow: Did you ever think you'd like to travel a long way off... as far and as high as the moon... and stay there for good... forever... and forget all about things down here?
Wes McQueen: There's been plenty of times I wanted to get away from where I was.
Julie Ann Winslow: That far away?
Wes McQueen: Yeah, that far.
Julie Ann Winslow: You never talk about yourself. I don't know anything about you at all.
Wes McQueen: There's nothing to tell. Like you said, wanting to get far off from what you've been. This is far off.

Dave Rickard: Have a drink, boy.
Wes McQueen: Are you supposed to have that stuff?
Dave Rickard: Oh, why not? We all got to die sometime. Me, you, and the whole cock-eyed world. It doesn't make much difference what kills us.
